Ecogeographical approaches to characterize CWR adaptive traits useful for crop adaptation

  1. 1. Ecogeographical approaches tocharacterize CWR adaptive traits usefulfor crop adaptationJosé M. Iriondo1, Mauricio Parra2, M. Luisa Rubio1, Elena Torres3, Rosa García41 Depto.

  3. 3. EnvironmentalchangeAdditivegeneticvariationAdaptiveevolution• Wild plants:– Migration– Adaptive evolutionMoving phenotypic optima andadaptive evolution
  4. 4. Moving phenotypic optima andadaptive evolutionGomulkiewicz & Holt (1995)• Wild plants:– Adaptive evolution
  5. 5. Moving phenotypic optima andadaptive evolutionGomulkiewicz & Holt (1995)• Crops:– Artificial selection– Additive genetic variation: (CWR)
  6. 6. Need to optimize search for CWRgermplasm accessions andpopulations• The most representative collection with the least accessions• Population/accessions most likely to have the genetic additive variancefor the desired traits

  12. 12. Ecogeographical LandCharacterization Maps• To combine climatic, edaphic and geographicdata to enable the prediction of patterns ofadaptive genetic variation according togeographic origin (Peeters et al., 1990)Parra-Quijano, M., Iriondo, J.M., Torres, E.

  14. 14. Ecogeographical Core Collections• Ecogeographic core collections provide goodrepresentation of the genetic diversity of theoriginal collection.• Validation of ecogeographic core collectionsusing phenotypic dataEcogeographical Core CollectionPEPhenotypic Core CollectionREPRESENTATIVENESS

  17. 17. Identification of geographic gapsOptimized collection of CWRgermplasm• No characterization of CWR genetic diversity.• Efficient representation of adaptive genetic diversity in CWRs• Most representative collection with the fewest accessions• Ecogeographical representativity to adequately represent genetic diversity useful to breeders

Focused IdentificationGermplasm Strategies• Mackay (1986, 1990, 1995)• Select accessions/populations most likely to have desired genetic variation for a target trait• Applied to traditional varieties. Even more appropriate for CWR.• Using ecogeographical data for prediction of phenotypic traits before evaluation trials.• FIGS subsets ≠ core collectionsTemperatureSalinity scoreElevationRainfallAgro-climatic zoneDisease distributionF I G SOCUSED DENTIFICATION OF ERMPLASM TRATEGYDatalayerssieveaccessionsbasedonlatitude&longitudeIllustration byMackay (1995)GISlayers/EcogeographicalvariablesGermplasmFiltering

  24. 24. If we are able to map the different adaptive scenarios for the target species, we can: Carry out efficient germplasm collections Create ecogeographicalcore collections (ex situ or in situ) Complement genotypic/phenotypiccharacterization Determine optimal places tomultiply/regenerate germplasmConclusion Identify populations/accessions most likely tohave the desired traits
